Like flowers, trees and vines, the Bonfante family has its roots down into the land. They are set in the south of Piedmont and take sap from a long tradition of winemaking. Today Marco and Micaela carry on the family tradition of selecting grapes and producing wines in Barolo, Nizza Monferrato, Gavi and the Roero area.
Marco Bonfante, a young wine-making concern, was born from Brother and Sister, Marco and Micaela's passion for wine, continuing the tradition of the Bonfante family, which has been producing wines in Piedmont for 8 generations. Micaela looks after the administrative side while, Marco, with his diploma from the Oenology and Viticulture School of Alba, in in charge of production and marketing. 'For us, Piedmont is a land of great wines, with a centuries-old wine and gastronomic tradition. The micro-climate and the characteristics of the soils, which change considerably from one area to another, gives us the chance to find the best 'terrior' conditions, both for the various autochthonous vines and for international ones'.
Believing firmly is our convictions and starting off from our family-owned vineyards, we elected various sites for growing grapes that were then turned into wine. Our headquarters are in Nizza Monferrato and are surrounded by the vineyards of the Stella farm, while the other vineyards are to be found in different areas, all in highly prized positions. The total area given to our vines, adding together the various farming estates in Barolo, Nizza Monferrato, Gavi and Castellinaldo Roero, covers more than 20 hectares.
